We believe that the first round is the best one to start a long-term relationship with a founder, especially in a young startup ecosystem like Latin America. We believe in the right money for the right stage of a company. And we are fully focused on being the best first investor.
We believe our ecosystem is at a tipping point. The quality of founding teams is already world-class and improving at an accelerating pace, the entrepreneurial mindset is permeating universities and younger generations and our nation's top talent is founding companies rather than looking for traditional jobs.
All over the world technology is changing the way people do business and live their lives. LatAm is no different. Every major industry and company will be transformed over the next decade, and this transformation will be ushered in by fearless leaders and bold entrepreneurs. And, here, the problems to be tackled are huge.
We are an operator fund: our partners are technology and investment entrepreneurs that have first-hand experience – and battle scars – from building and scaling products, teams, and organizations.
Our goal is to lead the first institutional round and then support founders with advice and follow-on capital in subsequent rounds
Founders should own the vast majority of their companies and avoid excessive dilution at the early stage. We aim for a minority ownership in the first venture round
Fundraising should not waste the founder’s precious time and focus. Our process takes from 1 to 3 weeks on average and every founder that reaches us gets a proper answer at an appropriate speed
After the investment we focus on helping during the early innings of the companies. After years of operating, we understand the main pain points for a young company and we have built our team and tools around them - both for new founders and also for the more experienced ones
We encourage an accessible environment where founders can reach our partners and network when needed, with agile and transparent interactions
We know how challenging and rewarding the entrepreneurial journey is, and we’d love to ride it with you if you give us a seat in your rocket ship
